Historical Collection, Medical Library WB 537 O85 1902
Philadelphia: P. Blakiston’s Son & Co.
The exercises illustrated here are examples of Swedish movements (remedial exercises). Swedish movements were first devised by Pehr Henrik Ling (1776-1839), who worked at the Royal Gymnastic Central Institute in Stockholm. Ling is considered to be the founder of therapeutic or remedial exercise which forms the basis of physiotherapy today. Exercises to alleviate lateral curvature of the spine and explicit manipulation procedures are also featured throughout this book.
